Driving global awareness among BDMs
Global awareness | Consumer engagement
Dangote wanted to drive global awareness of its brand by showcasing its dedication to empowering and improving the quality of lives across the African continent.
Dangote also wanted to increase consumer engagement with its brand in key markets across Africa, Asia, and the US.
Our solution was a branded content cross-platform campaign. There were four key pillars: CNN editorial sponsorship, Great Big Story sponsored content, branded content and an advertising campaign. Dangote Industries featured across TV, digital and social. A bespoke ad feature page was also created.
The campaign focused on stories told by real people and the connections they have with each other, navigated by Dangote Industries.

The campaign also featured 8 sponsored videos by Great Big Story which told untold stories and showcased the entrepreneurs, innovators and creators changing lives in Africa.

“Touching Lives: Farm to Table” – A character driven commercial film was produced, which highlighted Dangote’s role in the lives of real people. A bespoke ad feature page was created, and content was promoted on social to extend reach and drive users to the ad feature page.
A bespoke brand campaign extended campaign reach and shared Dangote’s key messages with CNN’s global audience.
